Bogus Miami Heat tickets investigated by FBI

MIAMI, Fla. - Bogus Miami Heat tickets were sold to a former NFL Hall of Fame player.  Now, the FBI is investigating as the team warns fans to be aware.

A FOX station in Los Angeles reports quarterback Warren Moon was scammed out of four first-row Miami Heat seats and $200,000.

A New York tourist was scammed earlier in the month out of $1,000 for four seats purchased via Craigslist. 

Some reports show NFL players Charles Woodson and Jarvis Green were also targeted.

WSVN in Miami reports that the FBI said it is, "confirming it is a pending investigation but can't comment any further."

Experts say floor seats are available online but season tickets are only sold through the Heat and its official partners. 

The Miami Heat is telling fans to beware through a fraud alert, saying www.NBATickets.com is the only secondary site where purchases "are authenticated and verified by Ticketmaster."
